Hello and welcome to this seasons anime first impressions. Just like before, I will be splitting these shows up into 4 categories (Great, good, bad and ugly) based off of my personal opinions of them. All opinions are based off of the first episode only. I’m watching only what Crunchyroll is simulcasting, so if there’s a show from this new season missing, I apologize. Let’s do it!!!
I didn’t think I would like Erased based off of its description, but I was pulled in within the first 10 minutes. I won’t say anything about the story; I don’t want to spoil it. Let’s just say I’m SUPER excited to see where this show goes.
Yamishibai: Japanese Ghost Stories Season 3
I don’t like adding in farther seasons of shows that I haven’t previously touched on, but I made an exception for this one. Yamishibai is in its 3rd season of short form horror stories, and I love it. It’s taking care of my Kagewani withdrawls. Anyway, Each episode is its own ghost story. If you like that sort of thing, you’ll love these.
Bubuki Buranki (BBK/BRNK)
This show is gorgeous. It took me back to Hayao Miuzaki’s classics with its art style. So far it looks VERY interesting, albeit a bit confusing.I definitely look forward to watching more.
These are shows I will enjoy watching, but will come second to my “The Great” list.
This anime is one that tells you exactly what kind of show it is in the first episode, a brutal, mech filled war story. It looks interesting, I’ve never seen WWII story plot done quiet like this.
Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinju
This is a very unique plot to an anime; rakugo. This show follows Yotaro, a man recently released from prison with one goal in mind, to become a rakugo storyteller. The episodes are long but I’m liking the story so far.
Tabimachi Late Show
Another short form anime revolving around a young cooking apprentice trying to master his craft. The show is only 4 episodes long, but it’s very sweet.
Ooya – san Wa Shishunki
A short form anime about a man who has just moved into a new apartment and discovers his landlady is a middle schooler. Not the greatest thing ever but it’s kind of cute. I can sense some possibly pervy stuff happening in the future…
Nurse Witch Komugi R
When I began watching this my first thought was, ‘this is a joke right?’ Turns out it was; this show is a goof on the magical girl genre of anime. Discovering that caused this to rank in the BAD category instead of the UGLY one. It’s silly and over the top, but hey, all good spoofs are.
I have no words for this. Four idols ,aka statues, are being managed by a girl who hates statues… yep. It is watchable, so it’s not in the UGLY category….
Please Tell Me! Galko – chan
A highschool short form about a girl with big boobs getting asked lewd questions by her classmates. While it sounds bad, there is something about it that makes me enjoy watching. And no, it’s not the boobs 😛
Ojisan and Marshmallow
A man who loves marshmallows more than anything. It looks kind of cute in a really silly way.
That’s it for this season! I hope this helped you to see which shows you may or may not want to watch and I’m sorry it’s so late…..
